Oaks Coffee exists to initiate a positive change in local lives through a stand-alone cafe that serves the entire neighborhood. We curate specialty coffee, made-to-order food, and event planning to elevate the customer experience. This is done with one goal in mind; to generously give profits back to our community partners who strategically aid the betterment of Chattanooga. We focus our give-backs on the underprivileged; bringing hope to youth via education & mentorship, resources to the less fortunate, and rescue to those in need. A few of our partners include Bethel Bible Village, YCAP, Habitat for Humanity, the Rescue Mission, and Love’s Arm Outreach.
Like a social enterprise, potential supporters have the opportunity to become an Oaks Champion (aka. benefactor). We steward their financial support to refine, improve, and extend our existing cafe/organization: that way we can continue giving our best to the community. Champions may choose to support internal projects at the cafe (ex. storage facility, walk-in cooler, or a coffee roaster) or give towards a general philanthropy fund to be used quarterly as needs arise with our partners. Champions also receive an annual newsletter to keep them up to date with the fruits of their giving; all donations are tax-deductible. To those interested in joining our coffee family, more details can be found on our website!
